Step into a refurbished, two-story residential home and belly up to one of three bars with baskets of fried pickle chips and cool ranch dressing ($6.95).

Signature Drop Kick chicken sandwiches ($9.95) pin appetites to wrestling mats with a chokehold of buffalo sauce and blue cheese followed by a roasted-almond sucker punch. Families with little ones may arrive earlier in the evening to lounge on Kennedy’s 80-person outdoor deck, sharing entrees of shepherd’s pie with Guinness-reduced gravy ($12.95) or cod and chips nurtured in batter and wading in a pool of steak fries ($10.95).
Kennedy’s entertains scores of diners with 17 televisions, pop-culture trivia, and live acoustic music on the weekends.
